I’ve been on house arrest (doctor’s order) since last week and it’s not the sickness that’s bothering me. It’s sheer boredom. So I have been making memes and posting them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep myself occupied with my own humor, hoping that I’d make a couple of my social media contacts laugh as well.
Didn’t expect that the travel/political meme I made this midnight (a product of a whole lot of boredom and a dash of melancholy) and posted on my wall and on DIY Travel Philippines would generate 20k+ likes and 10k+ shares as of 6PM today. Didn’t know about it until my cousin tagged me on another travel page that reposted it.
Good thing I put @takawtrip | @iyassantos there. Not really concerned about the text because I only based it on a meme I saw somewhere about the US elections. I’m concerned about the image because it’s one of my favorite photos from my trip to Tokyo last year.
I’m amused and amazed that many people identified with that meme. Minsan kasi akala ko ako lang nakakaintindi at nakaka-appreciate ng sense of humor ko. I’m glad that I was able to make people laugh in my own little way. How I wish I could create something greater and more socially beneficial. Hehe. Pero sige hindi naman ako choosy. Happy talaga ako for now na a simple offshoot of my downtime became something enjoyable for a lot of netizens, including one of my favorite standup comedians Tim Tayag!!! So thrilled when I saw him repost it on his wall!
Katuwaan lang! Enjoy!
